Grogan - “I brought in Jason to be my ‘touchstone’, the common sense guy, who will lead this campaign aganst Tom Cross in the Primary, which will lead to victory in the General Election. Jason’s check to me cleared, and if Jason’s check clears in December, I see Jason staying on till that money runs out too.”
Grogan - “What is really exciting, for me, is to visit all the southern border counties Jason toured when running for Lt. Governor. Going into all those out of the way places, no media, isolated townships and small towns, making sure to get no coverage, that is what I am really looking forward to…”
Breaking Alert: Grogan visits Du Quoin to inspect suspicious happenings at the 11th Annual Plummer Family Monopoly Playoffs. Malfeasance on the part of ‘Jason the Banker’ has been accused. More to follow.
I just cleared my entire day, set up a Doctor’s appointment for Tuesday to ge new meds, since Plummer and “Two-Putt” are going to duke it out, and I still win, becuase, well, someone has to lose, and someone has to keep going till next November …
To the anonymous patient at Rush Copley; We’re sending you flowers and our hopes for a speedy recovery. You’ll know they’re from us when you see one guy who’s 7′3 and another holding a seven iron looking for a ball under your bed. Oh yeah, you’re welcome.

Debate preparation coach Jason Plummer lends his expertise to Bob Grogan’s candidacy for Illinois State Treasurer.
“Bob, its totally cool, totally … I know this person who can put people in the picture behind us, and maybe even some Power Rangers and everything … just take this picture and leave everything … up to me.”
“Bob, I have alot of ‘pull’ down here. You havta understand, I ran two races, not one, two races down here, and I got votes. Lots. I mean, who can Tom Cross get to campaign with HIM? You lock up DuPage, I got like 39 counties down here … it’s like a lock or something cool like that.”

Just one inspirational thought for the day, “No man is truly a loser unless he has all the family money in the world and still loses as a republican in downstate Illinois.”
JP: Navy Intel keeps sending me these really long reports on relevance, or some big word like that.

“Wait ’til you see what I have planned for your visit to the campus bars in Carbondale. To show the students you’re Kool, you can shotgun a beer outta this thing I just bought in the drugstore. It’s in my shirt pocket, see?”
I got this write-in campaign for Governor going on, the HGOP picked a new Leader today, and the Trib thinks Poe is a Democrat…AND… I may or may not be I’m a Rush-Copley hospital bed with double Plummer meds, ok… I got lots going on here at the hospital (allegedly)
To the Caption,
Plummer, “The only thing that can this team from winning is the voters…”
Plummer, “Look, Bob, I like would watch Deb Detmers like … run … my campaign … and I got like a frown face … and I like can …call … people …and unlike the Lt. Governor race, I got make all the decisions the last month or so for Congress-stuff, so I can make good decisions. First, let’s take a picture before we go to the comic book store, you know, just to have for our wallets, like Buds do.”
Plummer, “Yeah, the ‘CPA’ thing on this signs was my idea, being a Naval Intelligence Officer, I know all about like letters standing for like full words. Like ‘CPA’, ok… ‘Come, Please, Anyone!’…’CPA’…campaigns are easy, actually when you run them.”
Bob Grogan lost ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors” to Tom Cross. This picture is the result.

“Don Kee-ho-Tee? I loved him in “The Godfather!” What a Kool movie. I never got to see it until Kollege because Dad said it had too many dirty words in it. Boy, was he right. Was it really about that guy from Springfield, though?”
Plummer, “Bob you’re a CPA, that’s cool. Being an Auditor, does that mean you control ALL audio in DuPage, like volumes to iPods and Cars on the street? Do you get to yell like whenever, and yell stuff…like, ‘I’m Bob the Auditor, I get to yell so back off! Audio! Audio!’, like that, as Auditor?”
OW, you have infinite details socked away. While you are (or maybe are not) kicking back at Rush-Copley, if you can spare a sec, do you know if ARDC Mr. James Grogan and DuPage Mr. Bob Grogan (a/k/a Plummer BFF)are related?
I can NOT confirm either way, so I going to leave that for someone who can/will speak to it.
I wish I was only half as smart as anyone thinks.
To the Caption,
Plummer, “Kingmaker? Yeah, Bob and I were playing Checkers waiting for people and Bob ‘Kinged’ me a bunch, I ‘Kinged’ him a bunch, the we only had ‘Kings’ left, then I lost, so Rich is right, I made a bunch of ‘Kings’ for Bob, so, to correct Rich I am a Kingmakers, plural, duh!”
@FakeJasonPlummer - Bob is getting the swing of this running statewide stuff. Once he embarrasses himself on ‘Chicago Tonight’ then I will know he has what it takes #MistakesAreHalfTheFunLikePickingMeManager
